Doom 3 is a first-person shooter; you run around and see things as if you're looking out of the character's eyes; you're weapon sticks out in front as if you're holding it. The problem is, there have been other first-person shooters and Doom 3 adds nothing -- zilch -- to the genre. In fact, earlier games have had more. Doom 3 looks good, yep. But that's it. The graphics and sound are excellent. But the gameplay is pathetic: Enter room, monsters attack you, kill them. Repeat. Period. That's it. Play it for fifteen minutes and you've played it for six hours. Sure, the id folks added a basic storyline (you're on Mars, demons have invaded the base through a portal, blah blah blah). But like a porn movie, the "plot" is just tacked on to have something there. It doesn't add anything. Enter room, kill everything, repeat. If that was the worst of it, Doom 3 would simply be boring. But it's not. It's actively annoying.
